If these levels are high, it is likely that you may have pancreatitis. Our panel can provide you with the peace of mind you need to get the treatment you deserve.
Pancreatitis is a condition that occurs when the pancreas becomes inflamed. The pancreas is a large gland located behind the stomach that produces enzymes that help the body digest food. Pancreatitis can be acute, meaning it comes on suddenly and lasts for a short time, or chronic, meaning it develops over time and can last for months or even years.

Symptoms of pancreatitis include abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, fever, and rapid heartbeat.
